At Ripon College, excellence is the norm, not the exception. Our student-athletes, like the ones pictured, understand the value of Ripon’s co-curricular philosophy, which emphasizes athletics as an important piece of the educational experience.
They make the most of the opportunities provided to help them succeed in the classroom and on the courts, on the fields, in the pool and on the trails and tracks.
Why our pictured student-athletes chose Ripon College
Inesha Wiseman | “I chose Ripon College because I loved the idea of what D3 represents. To me it represents me being a student first, then an athlete. As a pre-med undergraduate student, I want my education to always be first, but I also love the freedom of pursuing my other passions, such as volleyball. Ripon College coaches truly care about how their players are on and off the court, and always make sure we are working just as hard on the court and in the classroom!”
Brian Brown | “I chose Ripon College because of the ability to continue my athletic career at a school that also valued their academics. Ripon makes you feel like a person rather than a number. I also chose Ripon because of the baseball program and its winnings tradition.”
Cierra Boutelle | “I chose Ripon College for Athletics And Academics because I knew I would have the opportunity to strengthen my leadership skills in the pool and in the classroom. One of the biggest reasons I chose Ripon was because of how small it was. I loved the idea of having my name attached to my face rather than just be a number. Ripon has given me so many opportunities to grow and be pushed out of my comfort zone.”
Ryan Steffes | “I chose Ripon because of the great opportunities that it presented me academically and athletically. The small class sizes give me the opportunity to get to know my professors and how to properly succeed in classes. Along with this, the catalyst program grants me the opportunity to succeed in my future after college. Athletically, Ripon has a great history of players and as a program. Along with this, the coaching staff has made me feel comfortable from the moment I stepped on campus. That is why I chose Ripon.”
Brennah Bronk | “What really caught my attention about Ripon academically was the fact that the professors and the rest of the staff seem to genuinely care about your success and want you to flourish in and beyond your college years. Athletically, the Willmore center was what attracted me to the college because it is so nice and is one of the best gyms I’ve seen/used.”
